Reason #6: The Back to School Bash this Saturday, August 3 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the First Tennessee Pavilion and Finley Stadium.

Saturday, we will help get everyone ready for the start of the 2019-2020 school year with the second annual Back to School Bash from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at First Tennessee Pavilion and Finley Stadium. This event will help you and your children get ready for the first day of school on Wednesday, August 7. Saturday will be filled with fun, food, performances by school children, free backpacks, and lots of resources for families to get ready for the new school year. State Farm and Fund For Excellence sponsor the Back to School Bash with a lot of help from community groups, area organizations, churches, and volunteers.

The Back to School Bash will have information, resources, and free school supplies for parents. Young children can enjoy inflatable fun activities; there will be performing groups, school marching bands performing, health screenings, and much more fun for the entire family.

Parking will be available in the blue, gold and teal lots near First Tennessee Pavilion and Finley Stadium.

The first day of school is important for students of all ages- whether it be the first day of Kindergarten or the first day of senior year. Attendance on the first day sets the tone for the rest of the school year. Hamilton County Schools wants every student to be #FirstDayReady!
